Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Time for a wholesale change up at KCPD. That’s inexcusable. Smith needs to go and a whole hell of a lot more.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

There’s no denying opportunists have used this honest protest as cover to commit crimes. That always happens with large protests. That said, KCPD still bungled this whole thing. Changes are going to need to happen. Full local control would be a good starting point, but far from enough.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

And at this point, they are no longer garnering sympathy for their cause and playing right into the hands of the committee to re-elect Trump. The unfortunate result will be that while CV19 was hurting his re-election chances, the violence and looting will benefit him far more than it will hurt him....

Re: College Boulevard Road Diet

It's great to see OP is serious about urbanizing that area. That said, adding parallel parking w/o reducing the speed limit from 45 to at least 35 seems like a bad combo, doesn't it?

Re: Closing streets for restaurants.

I’m surprised Crown Center hasn’t set something up in their square for all of their tenants. Seems like they should have everything on hand to make it happen.

Re: OFFICIAL - Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

Lol. There’s always room to cut cost out of a development after the fact. W&R as the sole tenant also gives them greater say than they would otherwise. If they can’t afford the agreed to lease rate, ownership will be inclined to find ways to get that number down for W&R. Stuff like the glazing on th...

Re: Politics

The issue with announcing a bunch of cabinet picks before the election is you’re effectively tying your campaign to any baggage said pick may carry or be uncovered. Risky enough with just the VP (see Quayle and Palin). Perhaps you could proposed one or two picks (state and defense?) but much more an...

Re: FBI Campus

Riverfront seems like a weird location for this. Agreed. It seems like a bad use for that pretty limited area. There’s supposed to be a federal rule pushing agencies to select urban areas when possible. I’m surprised Metro North is in contention. Then again, the EPA somehow left KCK for that urban ...

Positive thing is those are an easy add if additional funds are found down the line. Does the city market have a CID?

Re: 13th and Grand tower

Again you’re making assumptions about availability. Until there’s a plan (physical and financial) in front of the council, it’s indeterminate if the garage contributes positively to the surrounding city. But based on the number alone, which again is all we have at this point, that’s a massive add to...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

1200 spots next to all the P&L garages is insane. But why would there be any incentive for the developer to lower the count? The city gave away the farm on W&R. We want this garage. It dramatically lowers the value of everyone charging so much for parking on the hundreds of spots around the Sprint ...

Thanks for the clarification normalthings. Seems odd to only list her as a grad student if she has (substantial) real world experience.
She's obviously inexperienced, generic, and typical. Likely won't contribute much dynamic and original thinking to the mix.
What a weird ass thing to say.

Re: 13th and Grand tower

While I’m heartened that it appears to be mostly activated at street level, the aesthetics seem subpar given the scale of the development.

The base reminds me of a DC brutalist building.

When Amazon bought Whole Foods, the HQ remained in Austin, TX. I don’t see a reason why AMC would be different?
